Beautiful Kid Girl Ruffle Sleeve Floral Print Denim Shorts Suits Review
John P. Thiel "John P. Thiel": I'm not a huge cook, my wife is, though I make an awesome grilled cheese sandwich and/or hot dogs--and I shouldn't discount the fact that I have worked doing food prep in several professional kitchens, though my wife is clearly the master.In my opinion, these measuring cups are really ideal for men. Easy to handle for people who might have trouble with dexterity or coordination, and I could probably run them over with my SUV without damaging them.My wife says they're a little heavy, hense my personal perspective. If you're a hard working cook or chef, I think these are a better choice than some dainty set from William & Sonoma.They get five stars from me.
John S. Dean "John": The set I received is supposed to be the "newer stronger" ones with better handles to prevent bending. This is scary, since I wonder what they were like then BEFORE this improvement, because these are not that strong at all.The ring to hold them together is more of an annoyance than anything else.As another reviewer pointed out, there's no spout-ish area on them. While they do "lean" forward they're still flat and circular on top, so pouring is no different than pouring out of a cup.The set I've been using, just a cheap black plastic nesting set, only has one more that this doesn't, a 1/8, that I never use anyway, so I'm not missing anything from a variety of sizes standpoint.The grip is fine, better than the bare metal would have been, and they do measure things, and come in the listed sizes, but there's really not a single thing here on them that makes them stand out from any other set out there, and the ease the "new" handles still bend make them a less than optimal choice with so many other options out there, especially for the price.
John Thomas... "New England...USA": I own a number of OXO grip items already, including a brush, carving knife, and whisk. All are fine quality and well worth the money. This measuring cup set is no different. The stainless steel is of excellent quality and the OXO grip stays easy to handle even if your hands or the utensil is wet. The size of the serving is embedded above the cup and won't fade or be rubbed off. They all fit onto a plastic ring, and can be easily pulled off for separate use. Although some reviewers here have talked about the handles on them bending at times, it still in my opinion takes a lot to do that, and they can easily can be straightened in the event they do. Overall a really well made and handsome set of measuring cups.The only thing I noticed about these cups is no matter which one you're using, you have to fill them to the very brim to get it exact. And I mean to the VERY brim. There is no line at the top, or lip of any kind. And when I filled a measuring cup with water and poured it into the the sets full cup size it came to the very, very top. It doesn't matter with a dry measurement that much, but with liquid it's so full you would easily slosh and spill some. It would have been nice if they had left even a 1/8th clearance at the top but they didn't. Just remember that when using them, for if you measure several times with them and don't fill them to the very top, you will be off some for sure by recipes end. Despite that minor annoyance, I really like these measuring cups for their looks, quality, and price, and I recommend them... : )
Jon Norris: Not much can be said about measuring devices - they must be accurate, easy to use, easy to clean, and sturdy.This set meets those criteria.They are well made, solid stainless steel with coated handles. The handles have a notched hole for hanging, and they come on a small ring to demonstrate this. The size of each measure is imprinted in the handle material in a contrasting color (sort of orange), and should last reasonably well.There are no fill lines or other markings or designations, but for measuring non-liquid items, they would be easy to scrape across the top to get a level measure, unlike glass measuring cups.I don't do a lot of baking these days, but I would think these would be outstanding for measuring dry ingredients.They are easy to hold and very sturdy. They should last a long time.
Joseph "jck09": These are great measuring cups. They're made of solid metal with plastic handles, each of which is marked with the cup size.I like that these have angled sides, which makes them easier to use to scoop up flour or other dry goods, and they're great for baking, because you can scoop up your ingredients, slide a knife over the top and be good to go.For wet measurements and things that don't require a knife slide (like rice), I prefer Oxo'sAngled Measuring Cups, which let you view from the top down and measure in smaller increments, but for baking, these are terrific.
